Meet your provider, Evangelos Messaris, M.D., Ph.D. Penn State Health
[ Intro Music ] I'm Evangelos Messaris. I'm one of the colorectal surgeons at Penn State Hershey Medical Center. Hello, good morning. How are you? I'm pretty good. I was born in Athens, Greece. My father is a surgeon. My mother was a surgeon.
So do we have any pain? No pain. Since I was five years old, I always remember myself wanting to be a surgeon. And actually, I never thought of doing anything else. Any symptoms like nausea, vomiting? No. I did my medical school in University of Athens, and then I did my PhD and my residency in general surgery at Brown University. I did my fellowship and specialized training in colorectal surgery at the Penn State Medical Center.
And I continued working here as an assistant professor of surgery. I became a doctor to help people. And I specialize in colorectal cancer.
Actually, with the medication you're taking, you're doing pretty well. We treat our patients as we would treat our family. When we have a patient with a colorectal problem, we solve the problem and we have in the Penn State family. Call me if you have any questions or problems. Okay.
Any problem you have, we'll provide you with the best possible advanced care in the country. I'll see you again in a year. Okay. And, we will cure you. Have a nice day. Thank you. [ Music ].
